Romney Wins!


“Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.’” (John Greenleaf Whittier)


A new ABC News poll suggests that, were the election held today, Mitt Romney would likely win the presidency.


The American electorate may, it seems, be coming out of its long spell of media-induced Obamnesia.  The Obamacare fiasco has finally begun to teach people, in a tangible and personal rather than abstract way, what Obamanomics really means.  Buyer’s remorse appears to be setting in.


Unfortunately, it’s too late.  We don’t live in a parliamentary democracy where a vote of no-confidence can send an incumbent packing.


Three more years!


In the meantime, though, there was this skit on Saturday Night Live:


Does running the United States have you feeling down? Say hello to Paxil: Second Term Strength, the only anti-depressant potent enough to cure dreadful second term woes. ”With Paxil you’ll feel like you’re giving a speech at a college campus in 2008,” this mock commercial promises, ”or getting bin Laden — all over again.”

This miracle drug treats a whole range of symptoms, including Benghazi, the NSA scandal, the IRS scandal, the AP scandal, the Petraeus scandal, that time Jay Z and Beyoncé went to Cuba, and even a real doozy like Obamacare website problems.

Just one little caveat: It’s not covered by Obamacare.

    Frankly, I think that we (the citizens of the U.S.A.) needed to get our collective butts kicked into reality by a presidency such as the current one. I think that a President Romney would have suffered endlessly from complaints both from the left and the far right. As it is now, we might be waking up to the catastrophe it is to have someone in the office with absolutely no experience for the job…and how important it is to consider substance over style. The Obama presidency is becoming hugely entertaining and it might just be the medicine we need. There is HOPE.

    Obama is America’s very own Zaphod Beeblebrox. He exists not to wield power but to divert attention away from it. How else can you explain the ridiculous things that come out of his mouth?

    The grass is always greener. Polls are polls. It’s interesting but it’s partially a function of people forgetting why they might not like Romney, but constantly being told why they shouldn’t like Obama. As it is, the ACA well come together soon enough and eventually Obama will be remembered as the pretty good, if not great, president that he is.
